Rap Therapy is a new set of short animated shows rap stars discuss their mental health struggles to help teenagers better understand themselves
E4 is to present a new short form animated series, aimed at teenagers, that sees some of the UK’s leading MC’s, rappers and lyricists talk openly about mental health and the things that have impacted them, from grief and body image to trauma. The series will also reimagine science-based mindfulness techniques to help young people improve their wellbeing. Artists involved include Krept & Konan, Ms Banks and D Double.
Across the five episode series produced by Mother’s Best Child & TOAD, viewers will be taken on an absorbing visual journey where they’ll be offered tips and methods to help cope with their mental health struggles, all backed by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation.
Topics to be covered in Rap Therapy include: Trauma, Mindful Breathing, Grief, Body Image and Sleep. We see E4 series as complementing the Netflix Headspace series, and is (of course) more closer focussed on UK teens, and free to access.
